Should county employees on county time using county equipment be accessing these websites? No.
Do these activities fall under a job description? No.
What about late arrivals, early departures, lunch at your desk then take a lunch hour, “comp time”, using county vehicles for personal use and the list goes on.
For those of you who work in the private sector would you get away with this? No.
When you go to work do you work?
Don’t get me wrong we have many county employees who are professional, dedicated, ethical and perform the duties for which they were hired and for which they receive a paycheck and benefits. However, there are some who “show up for work” but spend most of their day using their cell phone, chatting with co-workers or using county equipment for their personal and or political reasons.
Attempts to stop this behavior and attempts for investigation are met with claims of a hostile workplace and harassment because of their gender or political affiliation.
No one cares if you are a male, a female, a Democrat, Republican, friend, relative or whatever….. You can file claims against Fayette County, me and others but when you do or as you claim progresses it will be interesting to hear your explanation of your online activities and other misuses of county time and equipment. It will also be interesting to hear the excuses from those who refuse to investigate and to hold employees accountable.
